31st December 2008, My last walk this year
The day was cold, frosty with a mist.I started
at the bridge at Thornbridge and walked to
Ashford in the water
The peak trail, cold misty and deserted.

A footpath on the way to Ashford in the water.
The mosture in the air freezing on the plants
and trees making a great winter display.

The frost on the grass looks great.

to Monsal Head then on the path to Fin Cop.

At the sign post I took the path to Ashford.

quarry workings 6th December 2008

Longstone Moor near quarry workings

The bad and the ugly views of the Peak District
National Park. Part of the quarry workings on
top of Longstone Moor. To get an idea of the size
of the workings look at the bulldozer in the picture

Another view of the quarry working.
How will they fill this hole and reinstate
the ground?

settles on Longstone Edge. On the south facing
edge with the sun shining it feels quite warm
sheltered from the wind. A lovely day for a walk.
